“truly swedish style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

wonderful find. Once a farm, then a religious retreat, accommodation in various quaint converted timber outbuildings. Jasper was a" CAN DO " manager and nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful sunsets over lake Siljan. querky rooms with whitewashed timber walls. decor had cottage feel with gingham cushions very Laura Ashley. lovely comfortable beds. Visited Dalana for Midsummer Solstice. National costumes, maypole dancing, wild flowers abound. Rented superb bike for three days £25. Hired car for trip to Carl Larssons house. Excellent food served at Jons Andersgarden, bit expensive to eat there every night.. optional cheaper menu could be considered. Although restaurant was always busy, so the in-place to be. Only open in the Summer.

Room Tip: all interesting some have lake view

Many thanks to Jasper for his attentive care during our 4 night stay here during the midsummer celebrations. This place is a gem! Set above the lake with fantastic views, it is converted from an old farm and decorated in rustic shabby chic style - lots of white walls, good beds, crisp linen. and candles. Our bathroom was in a separate log cabin! There is a new suite with its own sauna here and improvements are ongoing. Jasper's Italian restaurant is very popular and housed in the main farm building - we had an excellent buffet breakfast with home made preserves there. Midsummer in Rattvik is THE place to be - over 1000 people gather together near the lakeside wearing flower garlands in their hair and dance around the maypole. Easy walk into town.

The hotel is well situated in Rattvik (provided you have a car as the walk to town would take roughly 15min) and has beautiful views out over the lake. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The staff were great, even going out of their way to prepare a late night snack for us. We would gladly stay here again.

The property is located in Rattvik on Lake Siljan. It definitely used to be an old farm. If you want a genuine Swedish experience this is your place. The rooms and facilities were very clean. However, the restaurant is extremely over priced. You will not walk away for less than 250 USD. The view is beautiful and all the staff is very nice and helpful. We had a smaller room that fit only 2 beds and nothing else. But it was enough.

Some of the users of Tripadvisor recommended this small guesthouse to us, and we decided to spend our valentine's weekend there. It was just what we were looking for. A group typical older wooden buildings (probably a former farm) were very tastefully renovated with a dozen guestrooms and a cozy little restaurant. The view over lake Siljan is fabulous. The food and the service are too. We will go back, but this time for more than 3 nights !

  • Liked — friendliness of the staff
  • Disliked — lack of storage for clothes, the in the (otherwise beautifully decorated) room
